I Want My Country Back
I want my country back. You know, the one where all men (and women) are created equal, the one that's a democracy, not a theocracy or oligarchy. I want my country, the one that is tolerant of everyone regardless of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation or financial status, back. I want my country, which refuses to invade another sovereign country, back. I want back the country where individuals care about each other, that puts people before profits. I want back my country where cooperation with civilized disagreement is the norm. I want legislators who care more about doing the right thing for their constituents and less about getting reelected. I want a country where everyone is a first class citizen, not just the chosen few. I want a country where the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. I want a country that cares for its most vulnerable citizens. I want a country where public education is the best in the world. I want a country with where health care is affordable and available for all citizens. I want my country back.
